Show Notes

In this episode of the Late To Grid podcast Bill sits down with Chip Manuel to learn more about Chip's motorsports background and how he approaches autocross competitions. 

Chips says that he was first a car guy (think Fast & Furious) and then found motorsports.  Hi did his first autocross while studying at Clemson.

He shares some awesome insights about how to approach autocross events and how to get faster.

Chip's advice to autocross beginners:

  • Compete with those that are better
  • Don't modify your car
  • Find a way to record you runs (Go Pro or similar camera)
  • Just get to an event!

Chip also shares some advice for the more experienced autocrosser.

Chip uses karting to keep the rust from building up in the off season.
